Watercolor Words – Love Hearts

Our current challenge at HANDSTAMPED SENTIMENTS (#383) is a Sketch.

I decided to employ the *KISS* Principle – Keep It Simply Simple!  I picked one color to tie into the selected Designer Series Paper pattern and the Tools / Theme from Dies “R” Us Challenge (#187) and the Shapes from the Make My Monday Challenge (#168).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Pool Party cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (4” x 4”) Pool Party and Basic White Heart patterned piece of paper from the FREE Sale-a-bration Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Tag: (3¾” x1¾) Basic White cardstock die-cut with one of the tag dies from the Tailor Made Tags Dies set.
    • The word, love, from the retired Watercolor Words stamp set was stamped with Pool Party ink.
    • Using a Sponge Dauber, Pool Party ink was added to the edges of the Tag.
  • Focal Interest – Hearts: Three Hearts, from the same stamp set were stamped with Pool Party ink on to a scrap strip of Basic White cardstock and then fussy-cut with Paper Snips.
  • Bow: (6”) White Baker’s Twine was colored with the Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blend.  Once dry, the bow was tied.

All of the elements were adhered to match the sketch and one of the three Hearts was popped up with Dimensionals.

Liking this color for a love card.  Perfect for an Anniversary and suitable to give to a fellow.  What do you think?
